Venus is now a closed ring! After some image processing the complete 360° glow of the planet's atmosphere is obvious in this view obtained around noon on June 4 from the Greek island of Rhodes by Tobias Kampschulte who added the 2% best of 3000 DMK video frames obtained with a 14-cm refractor (stopped down to 11 cm) and a green filter and sharpened the sum image; I then cranked up the contrast. Cool, eh? See for how this was accomplished.
